Witless List

From Aol NEWS:

The House Intelligence Committee has reportedly agreed on a witness list for its investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election that includes somewhere between 36 and 48 people, CNN reported Wednesday night.

Included on the list are current and former associates of President Donald Trump believed to have been in contact with Russian officials during the campaign or transition period, including Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner; Trump confidante Roger Stone; former national security adviser, Michael Flynn; and early Trump campaign adviser Carter Page, according to CNN’s Anderson Cooper.

The committee’s ranking Democrat, Rep. Adam Schiff, declined to comment. A spokesman for Rep. Mike Conaway, who is now leading the investigation, also declined to comment.

The committee’s probe into Russia’s election-related meddling, and whether anyone from the Trump campaign worked to collude with Moscow to undermine Hillary Clinton’s candidacy, stalled last month amid questions about committee chair Devin Nunes’ ability to lead an unbiased investigation.

…snip…

Last week, the committee released a statement saying it had had invited three former officials with knowledge of Russia’s interference — former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, former CIA Director John Brennan, and former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper — to testify in an open hearing in May. That hearing was originally planned for late March, but Nunes scrapped it unexpectedly.

The committee also invited FBI Director James Comey and National Security Agency Director Adm. Mike Rogers to appear at a closed hearing on May 2.

The full committee has also now gained access to the classified intelligence documents Nunes said he obtained from a source on White House grounds last month, according to CNN.

Reports have said Nunes obtained those documents from White House officials — despite Nunes’ earlier claims that he got them from an intelligence source — fueling speculation that administration officials had orchestrated the stunt to distract the press from Comey’s revelation that the FBI was investigating whether various Trump associates had ties to Russia.

  1. 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 I am BACK…..After three Pres election still loving me some Hysterical Raisins😎😎😎‼️

    • OMG!! This is such a nice surprise! 😮 I checked, and you haven’t commented over here since January 2015. Granted, I slacked off for a long while, but you still could have called or written. You know how I worry about my Raisinettes! 😉

      Welcome back Curtis! Don’t be a stranger. ❤

      • I will be aroud. Staying out of the boneyard these days. Tis about all I do these days. Trump has put me over the edge. Live to see all THIER asses in jail, or better…

        • i wonder if Twitler will pardon them all in advance. Either that, or he will turn a few floors of Twitler Tower into a prison, and he will charge the government to house them.

  2. Apropos nothing, i move we jump the gun and drop trump on North Korea as a final warning to ALL. Methinks, Kim _insert_middle_name_here_ Un would be duly intimidated and provoked into thought: US is so convinced of its victory that it’s willing to sacrifice its dictator in a show of force?! Wow!

    War thus averted, we can let Kim keep his little orange turd as a doll.
    Drop Spicy too. And KellyAnne on Syria. Nunes can be dropped on Yemen. I have more to give, but I am gonna pace myself.

    • I love this idea, Ilya! Tell the Rethugs that, if they really want to be considered patriots, they will volunteer to be dropped on hostile territories. I say we drop Steve King on Mexico. It’ll be hostile when he arrives!

  3. The plot thickens such as adding too much flour to the grease in the skillet. And all of Model T’s associates are a greasy bunch. If anything is brought to light that is relevant to T. and his crew colluding with Russia, I’ll eat your hat. I really want these folks to be revealed but I have my doubts about the committee and folks who will testify. They can all lie until they turn blue in the face.

    • I have faith in Adam Schiff, but I am still hoping for an independent prosecutor. I have absolutely no trust or faith in the FBI or the Justice Department under Ernie…I mean Beauregard. Eventually, someone will figure out who has the best shit to share and the least liability, and he will get the deal that will put the rest of them away. In the meantime, someone needs to start a pool. How many questions will be asked before the 5th Amendment is invoked (I say 2), and how many times will it be invoked (I say 374).

      • Ha ha. Sorry but I laugh at the Beauregard name. I really hope that you’re 100% correct and that one of the jack asses will spill the hay. We shall see! I’m sure you are right about the 5th. There will be an all time record of those poor bust-zards pleading. It’ll make good comedy.

        “Ernie…I mean Beauregard” — Now I’m wondering if you’ve made a poster from “Ernest Scared Stupid.” The joke about that title was “How could you tell?”
